Seeking Refuge Next Steps

Posted by Matthew Watson on

Seeking Refuge. Next Steps.

On Tuesday evening, July 5th, we gathered together to consider what a faith-informed response to the global refugee crisis might look like. We also engaged in critical reflection on how our faith in Jesus ought guide our care for undocumented immigrants.

We invite you to listen to the podcast from this event on our podcast page and then explore the books and resources listed below.

Special thanks to Matt Soerens from World Relief and Lisa Rodriguez-Watson from CCDA.

Books:

Seeking Refuge: On the Shores of the Global Refugee Crisis (Moody Publishers,2016)

Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion & Truth in the Immigration Debate (InterVarsity, Press, 2009)
